This is the most realistic hockey video game because you can do fake splatshots,passes and use the ea sports skillstick in a real game rather than just in a shootout,and the goalie mode is spectacular,I made tons of saves with it.And the on the fly Ai phishics, and the create a play feacture make this hockey game the most realistic hockey video game that's released now.

Besides the fact that i can see the sweat comin off Joe Sakic's face and realistic ice cuts, the most impressive part about this game is the blade control; both skates and sticks. The sensitivity and reactivity of he left joystick is ridiculous, and with the right stick you have absolute and total stick control. Toe pull, between the legs and stick, power stride while cupping the puck... its outrageous how perfect the puck movement is with just one joystick.
I find this game an excellent hockey sports game. it is perfect in every way. i think it a better game than nhl 2k8, because it's challenging and you have to change the way you play every period. the way you have to pass and shoot and check has been perfected by ea sometimes i'm not a fan of ea but this is a great game and I only hope that nhl 09 is made much the same way. i also think that is a better game than madden 08(more exciting)any way.
